Call for Papers 

ESA SPCD Organising Committee is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the 4rthedition of the International Symposium: Space Passive Component Days SPCD 2020. EPCI European Passive Components Institute has been a proud sponsor of ESA SPCD events.


The 4th SPCD will be held from 13th to 16th October 2020 at ESA/ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands. The SPCD international Symposium is the premier technical conference dedicated to Passive components for space applications. It is an exceptional venue to learn more about the latest advances in this field and meet recognized experts from industry, academia and agencies.
